Nice fun course. The best muni. I have ever seen. Fantastic clubhouse and driving range. The most unique putting green I have ever seen. It is a huge donut with cactus in the middle. The course is beautiful and well maintained. It has a few reachable par 5's which is fun. Highly recommended and a great drive to Burnet. - GolfReview.com

Featured in '1001 Golf Holes You Must Play Before You Die'
Delaware Springs Golf Course was one of only a few municipal courses listed in Jeff Barr's "1001 Golf Holes You Must Play Before You Die". The book, published in March of 2005, is a massive compendium of truly great golf courses in America, Canada, Germany, England, Australia, the Philippines, and more nations worldwide.
Barr, the book's editor, lauds the course designers Dave Axland and Dan Proctor for "making it click" at Delaware Springs, describing the course as truly worthy. The book features Hole 17, stating, "At first glance this is a birdie waiting to happen. But, as is often the case in this tricky game, first glances can be deceiving." He goes on to say, "This is a devilish little hole, and it's deception is delicious". Hole 17 is a 310 yard, par 4 hole stretched out along Delaware Creek. Delaware Springs Golf Course is located on Highway 281 South in Burnet, Texas in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
"1001 Holes You Must Play Before You Die" is available in most major bookstores in both paperback and hardcover and online at major book suppliers. The book's editor is Jeff Barr, who writes the travel section for Golfweek magazine. – 2005
